Oslo is Norway's confident and culturally rich capital. Its showpiece museums and galleries, combined with pretty parks and opportunities for island hopping boat tours in the Oslofjord, make this one of Scandinavia's most exciting city break destinations.
The Viking Ship Museum, which houses three 9th century Viking vessels, is well worth a look, while Norway's nautical heritage is further revealed at the Kon Tiki Museum, dedicated to the expeditions of Thor Heyerdahl, and the Fram Museum, which houses Roald Amundsen's Antarctic expedition ship, the Fram.
Another Oslo travel highlight is the Munch Museum, within which are displayed works by the celebrated Norwegian painter, Edvard Munch, including his original version of The Scream. The Ibsen Museum, dedicated to Norway's most influential playwright, and the Opera House - where performances by the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet can be watched - are also not to be missed.
You might also like to visit Vigelandsparken, where more than 200 fantastical sculptures by Gustav Vigeland provide a dramatic setting for walks and summer picnics.
